Become flexible with Yin & Restorative Yoga

There are 4 free yoga classes in this section of the course and 3 extra classes.

We need to grow stronger...slowly.. but most of us also need to regain flexibility by learning to be still and relax.

Practicing Yin & Restorative yoga makes you more flexible. I am living proof. I was getting stiffer over the years and had a sore back and hip when I first started yoga. I have learnt... and it wasn't easy, to hold an asana and relax.

My mind would want me to keep moving.

What next? How much longer? What is the point? This is boring...With time and patience (never one of my strong points) the internal chatter dissolved with my breath and peace and softening finally joined me as I practiced.

Find presence, poise and grace in the gentle asana first.

Yin & Restorative positions are mainly practiced sitting or lying down and are held for much longer periods of time.


Yin Yoga asana are held for 2 to 3 minutes. This gives your muscles and mind the opportunity to relax and let go and as this happens over time you move deeper into the posture.


Restorative yoga is much more gentle and nurturing and can be held for even longers, often with supports such as pillows.

Yin & Restorative yoga help free your body and mind from injury, pain, suffering. Both mental and physical

YOGA CLASS 1/ Relax. Relax..Relax.. is a simple, gentle, restorative class which is practiced laying on your back. It is incredibly important for the health of your whole spine and nervous system

It is a gift to yourself, practice it often.

The Heart of Yoga

YOGA CLASS 2/ Saraswati Wisdom is an intermediate to advanced class.

I usually adapt a class I am practicing at home for teaching everyone but this class is not adapted.

Emotions surface with the water classes in particular and like life they are not always "feel good."

Notice frustration if you can't practice some of the postures in this class, accept this and learn to be adaptable. Find an alternative become an experienced "yogi"

Find joy and grace with flow yoga

Flow yoga is beautiful to practice, very feminine and graceful.

Instead of holding the asana we move with the breath.

If you can't relax, if you can't sit still. Then flow........

Add specific mudra, add music or mantra

and yoga becomes a spiritual practice.

It raises your spirit...hard to describe but easier to feel.

My flow classes have been choreographed by me as I practiced at home, whilst listening to Sacred Earth.

I loved practicing them so much I wanted to share them. My yoga students love them and it encouraged me to share them with you. 

The more you know your routine the quicker your mind will settle.

Make sure you know the postures well before flowing.

In one of the Moon Flows I am sitting in lotus but you might be sitting in a chair or cross legged.

Learn to adapt and enjoy yoga. Too often I see student's forcing themselves to go deeper, this is an important lesson.

Be gentle and your body will relax and soften, push and your body will stiffen and protect itself.

YOGA CLASS 3/The Moon Flow Class is a favourite of many of my students. 

Strong Women

The first 10 minutes is standing and can be practiced by everyone with care.Take your time to learn Shakti Mudra before you begin - Essence of feminine power hand gesture. If it is too challenging for your fingers place the tips of your fingers together and practice Hakini or Prayer. A student told me Shakti Mudra was too difficult for her, so we adapted. Thanks for your feedback Vickiā¤*At the bottom of this page, you will find Moon Work a fortnightly guide to help bring you back insync with the feminine cycle of the moon. Time to look up at the sky, enjoy the dark, the yin, the cool & calm.

Recommended Books. I found them both in the local library and then bought them.

Lunar Abundance by Izzy Spencer. Moonology by Yasmin Bowland

Both are wonderful guides to inspire you to live a beautiful and happy life.

YOGA CLASS 4/ Sacral Chakra Class is beginner/intermediate and also lovely to practice.

Learn a lovely sun & moon flow with 5 hand gestures to balance the energies of earth, water, fire, air and space. Then move into Yin asana for flexible hips and lower back.

One of my students gave up her job after practicing it in class.

I was a little shocked when she told me.

She then struggled with what to replace a job she didn't enjoy with and also not earning "her keep"

She has now started her own charity to help underprivilaged women in our society and realises her true value is not how much money she earns.

Bird Song

Spend at least 2 months on this section of yoga classes & meditations as you work your way through Weeks 9 - 16 of  Bird Song 

My body & mind began to change quickly when I started my Yin Yoga Teacher Training.

I was once average health & flexibility, getting a bit stiffer through the years.

Now I am incredibly flexible...it happened through learning to relax & let go.

Learning Ocean Breath.

Dropping into my favourite restorative yoga positions any time of the day, in bed before sleep and sometimes at night when waking with a hot flush.....

Once you learn all this, yoga becomes an essential part of your life.

You start to feel the changes and you become more intuitive as you practice.

You may make up your own class. Be your own Guru. 

This is the missing part of many yoga classes, the feminine.

The Rainbow Teachings

MAKE YOUR OWN BEAUTIFUL HEALTH TREATMENT PLAN

Stay and work on the Sacral Chakra if you have problems in your lower spine, pelvis and hips, your circulatory/lymphatic system.

If you are emotionally going through guilt, grief, depression, feeling joyless.

Buy a health diary. Write down your symptoms. Then make yourself a treatment plan.

Write down 10 things you will do every day (don't feel "guilty" if you don't do them, you are learning.)

Here is an example.

1/ 10 Minute Moon Flow Daily.

2/ 10 Minute Orange Stone Meditation 3 x a week

3/ Buy yourself a beautiful bright dress and wear it once a week. Orange and reds.

4/ Buy a carnelian crystal bracelet and wear it.

5/ Clean the house using a couple of drops of eucalyptus oil on your cloth. Find out why.

6/ Chant Vam

7/ Write out an affirmation for yourself. "I am learning to create a beautiful life." For example. Repeat it in the mirror, whenever you see your reflection.

8/ Have a bath or swim in the ocean

9/ On the Full Moon sit and write down in your diary everything you are grateful for...

10/ Practice the restorative class Relax.Relax..Relax...once a week.

Moon Work

MOONOLOGY IS THE STUDY OF THE MOON AND HOW YOU CAN WORK WITH IT"S CYCLES TO EMPOWER YOUR LIFE.

* I am now a Certified Moonologer with Yasmin Boland and it has taken my practice to a much deeper level which I wish to share with you

The Moon is part of the water element teachings. The cycles of the moon influence the tides and our own feminine cycles. The word month is moonth.

Use the knowledge for self-study of your own months and cycles.

To help plan and change your life, follow your heart and create and live a beautiful life.

Become healthier in Body - asana, herbs, diet.

Mind - breathing exercise, mantra, yantra, mudra.

Spirit - feeling part of nature, part of everything, whole. (Following the moonthly cycles)

The health system of Yoga & Ayurveda is interconnected through an understanding of the elements of Earth. Water. Fire. Air. Space.

The horoscope is a sacred & simple prompt to encourage self reflection, self knowing & self awareness.

There is no better calendar than this one, created thousands of years ago, by observing the moon, the planets, the seasons, the cycles of nature. 

As an example Taurus Is an earth sign. There are 3 earth signs in the zodiac 3 fire, 3 water, 3 air. Already you have practiced and connected to the earth, the base chakra in the first section of the course and now water learning yoga & meditation, crystals, mudra, self massage.. 

There is usually 1 Full Moon in Taurus &

1 New Moon in Taurus each year.

Keep going with the course....

 

A new moon is a time to start again. Another month. Another opportunity. A new beginning. MASCULINE ENERGY

The Yang of Life.

After the full moon it is time to rest, to nourish, to let go, to be still and listen.

The Yin of Life. FEMININE ENERGY.




If you would like to learn how to work with the energy of the moon spiritually be it Earth. Water. Fire or Air.

Every fortnight I write moon work on my Facebook page Bird Song - Women's Circles.

I don't want to remove the Moon Work below. I think it is potent - this is what spiritual means to me.

New Moon in Gemini Thurs 6th at 22.37

Working with the heart chakra as Gemini is an air sign. The darkest time of the year, but also the time when the beautiful, bright yellow Wattle trees flower on the ridges letting everyone know the whales are travelling up the coast.

The winter sun how I love to sit and feel her warmth, she bites and stings in summer but she nourishes in winter.

This is the time to walk, to light the fire, to sit on sandstone rocks, to sing your heart out and dance in the privacy of your own home.

This is part of my winter story of living here in Australia on the Central Coast but each of us has their own story and connection to time of year and the land.

Write yours and invite family and friends.

Each sign has different emotional teachings for living well, one a month for the New Moon and one a month for the Full Moon
